Football Manager 2023 Skins - FM 2023 FLUT skin - Version 8.0
Dear all

This is FLUTSKIN version 8.0 for FM23!!

First of all I would like to give a great thank you to all FM fans who choose to play with FLUTSKIN and always keep me motivated to still editing the skin and gave me new ideas!!!

A special thank you to all of players who decided to distinguish my work with a donation!! Although just a small part of FM Players who use the skin made a donation (I edited the skin as a hobby and, as you know, completely free), I always feel honoured and happy when people recognize the work done and decide to contribute. So, I reinforce, I have to give a special thank you to that friends of FlutsKin!!!!!!

Also a thank you to all the skin makers who indirectly contribute to my work, and a special thank you to PATRES10, from fmslovakia for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin), to MICHAEL MURRAY since I started editing the match inbetween highlights panel based on his amazing work, to QVORDRUP, for the metallic “Round country flags” and his great collaboration in the “country locator maps”, to NUNO KOPIO for the “Square shiny flags” I included as alt files (for using as an alternative to the “Round country flags”) to PMPOU for his great contribution with many tickets to customize the skin, and to DAZS8 for his great work in the addons for Flutskin. I also thank you for the contributes made by NOLEAFWILEN and RICHBELL.

In FlutSkin you can find so many changes comparing to the default skin that I can’t present all of them here. I suggest you to go through the panels in order to see with your eyes all the changes!! (it includes the most required stuff such as instant result during a match, picture of the player who scores a goal in the match, last starting XI in club overview panel, citypics, outside and inside stadiums vision, real 2D kits in player overview panel, etc, etc).

    The pack includes many alt files for customize the skin (please read the read me file included in the pack) and several tutorials: 1) how should be the configs for the stadiums packs; 2) how can you adjust the size and the place of the kit number in player overview panel; 3) how can you do the 2D kits adapted for Flutskin. BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS OR REQUESTS, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE ALT FOLDERS AND ALSO AT THE READ ME AND TUTORIAL FILES!!

    You also can download the stadiums megapack and the citypics released by DAZS8 (thank you, my friend)

    Important note regarding TV LOGOS:
    Although the default tv logo is the one I use, of course you can easily change it; for that you just have to go to skin/graphics/icons/tv logos. In that folder there is a alt folder with many TV logos. You just have to replace the tv logo.png and the tv [email protected] for that one you want. Of course you should rename the new logos as tv logo and tv logo@2x. You also can use other logos made by you. The procedure to use them is exactly the same. However, I should remember that yo should use logos with the right height. For tv logo you should use 25px and for the @2x you should use 50px.

    As always FlutSkin is completely free to download and I hope you enjoy it. However, if you want, you can reward my work donating whatever amount you wish. Any small amount is really appreciated.
    You can do so by clicking the button down below:

    Resolution requirements:
    This skin was made to work properly in 3840x2160 (4K with windows display settings 200%) and also 1920x1080 (1080p) full screen mode, sidebar icons only. As a result, some panels won’t work properly in other resolutions..

      Hi Flut,
      What have I done wrong, all of the sudden I can´t see the player form in percentage but only the heart. I tried to deleted the skin and download it again but nothing happens, I still only have the heart icon on all screens?
      Thank you

      Hi Flut!

      Is it possible that the tab for German-Bundesliga tickets is preselected by default? Every time after loading a save game, the tab for the Portugal ticket is selected and I always have to change it.

      Many thanks in forward!

      hey in to what folder comes the "alts _V8"?
    • Telutelu43's avatar
      Good morning Mr. Flut . When I remove the boxes in the attributes of the players and when comparing two players their attributes for a position/role, the player on the right does not have his attributes. Please could you fix this for FM24? I love this skin. Thank you.

      Good morning Mr. Flut

      Thank you so much for your amazing package.

      I need for your helps.

      How can I change the color of the (Player Properties) and (Positions) boxes? For example, if I want to make the color blue instead of the color green.

      Kind regards, KokoLakiss from Türkiye

      Hi all

      The new FM is almost available. Thus, I will consider that my work regarding this FM23 skin is done. Thus, please don't expect that I will answer other new questions and requests. I can't promise that. Sorry.

      Cheers and thank you all of you for your kindness and great support!!

      thanks for the help
    • Flut's avatar
      Hi maxkolonko: as you can see, is okay in my game. Try to clear the cache, exit the game, keep only this skin (and this skin version) in the skins folder and reload the game.

    • maxkolonko73's avatar
      Do you know why there are such differences?
    • maxkolonko73's avatar
    • maxkolonko73's avatar
      Currently on the latest version it looks like this. Why?
    • maxkolonko73's avatar

      I have a question. Previously playing on the basic version of FM 23, when I sending out scouting, I had this image of the observed player.

      Hi Flut
      Thanks for replying much appreciated
    • Godlike's avatar
      @Flut, now It works, I must create a logo folder in graphics.
    • Flut's avatar
      @srhlfcfan: hi. You can use the files included in the folder named "2 alt for skin without backgrounds". Thebackground displayed will be the default of the skin. You can change it according your taste in the graphics/backgrounds of the skin.
    • srhlfcfan's avatar
      Hi , can you please tell me how to change the background on the skin , I want no background just a dark colour permanently instead of having to keep changing it when I load fm up
    • WelshyJim's avatar
      Hey Flut, thank you for reply last week. It worked like a treat. Thank you :)
    • Flut's avatar
      Godlike: it seems everything is okay in your xml. Thus, it should work. Do you have the folder in graphics/logos (the graphics folder of the game)?
